Ivi iss Nila f. Alien formerly of Independence. By now of washing Ion b. C., has been made chief of the child labor tax division in the Bureau of internal Revenue Treasury department at Washington d. C., and is rapidly organizing that i Dion preparing for the enforce Niento of the Law taxing the employment of child labor. Miss Allen has sent us a Brief synopsis of the Lav a hich is now in effect and she has been appointed to take charge of the enforcement of the child labor Law. The following is a Brief outline of Nhat the Nev Law is aimed to do this Section provides that any Ovner of any mine or Quarry or Mill or factory where children under fourteen Yea re of age Are permitted o work Quot during any portion of the taxable year Quot shall be taxed ten per cent of the pro his made by the is table Ishmeil this Means that if one child works one hour in the year one tenth of a w ire profits shall be paid to the Quot government. Thar Loucius like emplo3 or of Cinco air or a Herc ii is Kenderesi. Iii Kiwy ers could Proi eci him Foj Quot oin a the other iinds of Laws slate and National. Thai stave i Cei Quot Ijas sed. The could keep him out of i Ison a if keep the ii Lidren at a Curli. Bui Here is a National government department which is going to mail him report the name and age of every child that works for him. I is going to Check up ins truthfulness by inspectors who a ill investigate the reports. If he is found falsifying the age of a child or making the child itself falsify its age there is a substantial one waiting for him in a Federal court. Then in order that the collection May be ample in Case he does employ child labor he will be required governor Goodrich did not confine to tire political aspirants hungered for that s7,000 Job of chief Engineer of Highway construction in Indiana. Indeed he did not confine himself to Indiana but went out of the state entirely and selected h. K. Bishop of Washington d. C., for the position. Or. Bishop is the District Engineer for the Bureau of Good roads and is a Man eminently qualified for the work in hand. As the governor remarked in appointing him Quot the Engineer Enli be largely in Spon Sibly for the condition of the roads on a hich the people of the state Are going to spend $3,000,0c0 this Vear and from $5,000,000 to $7,-000,0"00 a year after this. Quot when we tried to take this Man away from the Federal government he was valuable enough to it that the government raised his salary s1,000 above a hat we proposed to pay Liim. I advised the commission that for $1,000 it could not afford to lose a Good Man when his expert know ledge might save the state Many times that sum in a single mile of Road the governor is to be congratulated upon his determination in this matter. Of course certain politicians Are disappointed but even at that the governor played Good politics. For the Best politics in this Day is that which looks to the furtherance of the Public service. T he care of the highways of in Ciana is too important a matter to be left to the politicians of the state and it would have been a desperately bad judgment on the governor s part to have listened to advice to thai effect.

Just writing this letter to describe to you a Garden. A Garden is a feast of the Patron Saint of the Chapel or Hamlet in which it takes place paradoxical and seemingly in parable combination of a genuine and intensely religious manifestation with an apparently frivolous and almost childish desire for amusement.
